Fall Flat Jigs
Productive & Popular!

Here's a very effective lure, well proven in 2016. Schoolie tuna, both bluefin and yellowfin will gobble these up.  The Fall Flats are a metal jig that has a slower action on the drop, fluttering like a baitfish that's in shock from being hit by a predator. These are relatively slow drop jigs. We're focusing on their heavier weights at the present time. If you want lighter weights we can certainly get 'em, but really also have that base well covered with a similar jig from Savage Gear (their Squish jigs). The finish of these is quite good, will reflect light well. There are some similar lures out there, so why do we like these?  The weights and finish are consistent to what we were looking for, and the rigging was done right. No cheezy making bait type assist hooks. The hooks used for these jigs are of heavier gauge steel, and a bit larger than what you'd likely see on some other similar products in the marketplace. Pricing is also fair for what's offered. So, we're glad to offer our clients a lure which should be helpful, both for the smaller schoolies and capable of taking much larger tuna under the schoolies with the higher 200 and 250 gm weights.

Well, the idea of only stocking the 200 & 250 gm sized lures didn't last long... Got quite a few guys stopping by the shop to tell us that we really should be stocking the smaller sizes, so that's what we did. 125/160/200 & 250 gram size Fall Flats are now available, priced at a very reasonable $8.99, 10.99, 11.99 & 13.99 respectively.

Targeting the larger bluefin, use a harness. This style of lure is fairly short, and big fish tend to swollow 'em which means the chance of being chewed off increases considerably - not like using a circle hook that's embedded in the corner of the fish's mouth. We have these available at 5 foot length, on heavy Fluorocarbon with ball bearing swivel (200, 300, 400 lb), crimps, chaffing springs... Cost is $15.99 to 19.99

(The ToroTamer Slash jigs in 300 and 400 gm are what's recommended for targeting the deep water tuna - fish holding 300 feet and greater. The original Fall Flats, are a slower action jig and more often than not used above that depth, even within 25 feet of surface for good effect. The new 400 & 500 gm model Fall Flats will prove better suited for the deeper water bluefin off CA's coast or the Slash at 300/400gm. Nothing lighter is really worth dropping over the side of the boat, you'll have too much scope and the slow drop will be to your disadvantage). 

ONE KEY POINT - DO NOT ATTACH YOUR MAIN LINE OR ASSIST HOOKS TO A SPLIT RING. DON'T DO IT, THEY FAIL.
We have seen several rigging options employed by anglers some better than others. We've also seen some rigging from other shops which was totally worthless. Some anglers change the rigging to another split ring at the nose or even a J hook at the rear connected by a split ring. Both have their downside. Best option in our opinion is to make use of assist hooks, but have your mainline and hooks attached directly to a solid ring NEVER a split ring. As is, the rigging is fine for most fish, but if targeting the larger grade bluefin and yellowfin, those fish going over 100 lbs, you will want to re-rig your lures. Even then, given the relatively small size of the lure and the likelyhood it will get inhaled, line chafing from the tuna's teeth..., successful anglers make use of a short tether. Feel free to give us a call regarding rigging ideas based upon where and when you're fishing.)

The picture above came from a client, we've had more than one come in and tell us the same tale. If it were not for the way we rigged up their lure they'd have lost the fish of a lifetime.  In this instance it was a nice 170 pounder that took the bait, and the angler got the fish. However, the jig was nowhere to be seen. It had been pulled off the split ring. Do not trust split rings as the connecting point to your hooks or main line, that's for solid rings only.

 

FALL FLAT IN TUNA CRAB PATTERN

For 2019 and beyond we have a new color pattern which many will find very useful.  We've all seen bait balls of red tuna crabs offshore which yellowfin love munching.  The manufacturer of the Fall Flats introduced a new Red Crab version of their popular jigs fall of '18.  We're stocking these in three sizes, 80gm, 125 and 160.  The jigs make use of the same quality hook rigs, very much capable and proven performers on the big bluefin tuna we've had off San Clemente for the past couple years. That's something you can't say for some of the other similar jigs on the market which offer hooks only good for smaller rockfish.
